You can exchange your ticket for a wristband at the festival gates or in advance at the Forum Shopping Center.

Please note that you are responsible for the wristbands you collect, and Weekend Festival is not responsible for lost wristbands.

Accessibility and assistants

The assisted person needs a regular ticket for the event. The personal assistant can enter the festival area free of charge in the company of the assisted person. The personal assistant does not need their own separate ticket, and will get a wristband at the festival gate. The assisted person and their personal assistant can use the VIP entrance together. If necessary, the need for assistance must be proven with e.g. a disability or escort card or other official certificate.

The festival area is accessible, excluding the raised Diamond area. There are accessible viewing platforms in front of the Main stage and the Future stage. There are disabled toilets next to the platforms.

Any kind of bullying, violence or hate speech is not welcome at Weekend Festival. If you experience a feeling of insecurity at the festival or witness inappropriate behavior, please notify the nearest security officer. We want to offer everyone a positive and friendly environment, which is why we have zero tolerance for this kind of activity.
